Get an extended first look at Valiant’s “Faith: Dreamside” #1
Faith Herbert has become one of Valiant Comics’ most popular characters, and with good reason: she’s a hero of the purest sort, doing the right thing because she can and trying to see the positive in any situation. Ahead of the debut of her new solo series, Faith: Dreamside, Valiant have released an early look at the first issue from the superstar creative team of Jody Houser, MJ Kim, and Jordie Bellaire. Check it out below.
First Preview: FAITH: DREAMSIDE #1 Soars Into Stores on September 26th!
As revealed today at io9, Valiant is proud to present an exclusive first look at the lettered and colored interiors of FAITH: DREAMSIDE #1, an all-new, unforgettable team-up between the breakout stars of two award-nominated Valiant series: the high-flying fangirl Faith Herbert, and the death-defying Doctor Mirage!
From celebrated writer Jody Houser (FAITH, Mother Panic), rising star artist MJ Kim (FAITH’S WINTER WONDERLAND SPECIAL #1), and two-time Eisner award-winning colorist Jordie Bellaire (BLOODSHOT SALVATION, NINJA-K) comes the first issue of a brand new limited series from the publisher’s new “BEYOND” initiative – as well as Faith’s first triumphant return to comic book store shelves since both her star-making solo turn in FAITH, and the equally exciting time travel adventure series, FAITH AND THE FUTURE FORCE!
“[FAITH] has been beyond anything I imagined,” writer Jody Houser told io9. “I initially pitched for the character because I could relate to her love of pop culture and I loved her positivity. I especially loved how she combined the two to be a force for good in the world. Seeing fans embrace her and everything she stands for has been more rewarding than I can ever express.”
Even before Faith Herbert gained the power of flight, deep down she was always a hero at heart. But what’s a hero to do in the face of a foe that exists only in nightmares? Face them head-on, of course! To protect the dreams of her teammate, Animalia, Faith must venture into a fantastical new realm the likes of which we’ve never seen…and she’ll need some help from the world’s premiere parapsychologist, Doctor Mirage, to make it back with her subconscious mind still intact!
Faith: Dreamside #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on September 26.
